Police reminder: don't leave pets in the car
Police are reminding you not to leave your furry friends in the car when its hot out.
This after Woodstock cops were called to a mall parking yesterday where a dog was locked in a van.
Animal cruelty charges are pending against the dog's owner.
This week a Kingston man was charged under the Ontario SPCA Act after leaving his dog in a hot car in Toronto back in June.
Police had to break into an SUV parked at the Queen's Quay Loblaws to let Parker out. The dog got loose & ran onto the Gardiner & stopped traffic for awhile.
Parker's owner is charged with permitting distress. If convicted, he could be jailed for 2 years & be fined up to $60 000. He could also be banned from ever owning another animal again.
